Hi ssindhu...
I don't think it's good design for your jsp to read from an ini file. I suggest you to create an initializing servlet. The primary task of the servlet is to load all configuration data to the servlet context, which is like the global variables of servlet and jsp. These data are shared by different servlet and jsp.  Another alternative is to use the getInitParameter() method. Different web servers have different way of setting the init parameters.

best regards...

Properties re=new Properties();
      InputStream is=getClass().getResourceAsStream (filename);      
      try
            {
            re.load (is);
            }catch (Exception e)
                  { e.printStackTrace ();}
